Declare a "Climate Change Emergency" ~ Gananoque
We ask that the Gananoque Town Council declare a "climate change emergency".
This has been a strange Spring, cool and long, with flooding set to exceed that of 2017. We are seeing things like ticks carrying diseases moving into our area as the weather becomes more suitable to them. Gananoque is noted as being a lyme disease hot spot. Other Ontario municipalities are recognizing we have changing weather patterns that are going to affect us all in negative ways. The brunt of these effects are and will continue to be felt most on the local level and municipalities need to be planning and ready for the challenges of this.
Gananoque has been forward thinking in the past. It is time to be so again.
